GRANT score: A new tool to predict survival in kidney cancer patients

A recent study, published in Scientific Reports last month, describes the validation of a new scoring system for renal cell carcinoma (RCC) called GRade, Age, Nodes and Tumour (GRANT). GRANT can be used to predict survival of RCC patients who have had a nephrectomy.

In this study, GRANT was validated in over 73,000 kidney cancer cases using the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database to identify patients with either clear-cell or papillary RCC who underwent nephrectomy between 2001 and 2015. The validation process further demonstrated GRANT’s reliability for predicting survival of RCC patients.
